Cowes, Isle of Wight, Jan. 26.-1245
a.m.—With a pathos an 1 solemnity such
aB seldom marks the passing away from
daylight into darkness, the royal family
yesterday took their last loving look at
the features of the dead Queen. About
100'clock in the morning the shell was
brought into the bedroom, where were
waiting King Edward, Emperor William,
the Duke of Con naught, Sir Jas. Reid
and tbe royal ladies. The latter having
retired, Sir Jas. Reid with reverent
hands, assisted by three trusted house-
bold servants, in the pretence of the
King, the Emperor and the Duke, removed tbe body from the bed to the
coffin. In death it was lovlier than in
the closing days of life. Not a trace of
the ravages of disease were visible. The
servants having retired Queen Alexandria, the princesses and the children were
recalled and with lingering steps and
stifled soba they passed slowly before the
white robed and peaceful figure. At the
foot, never moving, stood the King, and'
when the mourning crowd bad passed
there remained only the son and grandson of the Queen. Emperor William
wept even more bitterly than the royal
ladies. Finally be also retired and the
King was left alone. Sir Jas. Reid,
beckoning to the servants with the lid,
asked the King's instructions. For a
few seconds the King stood speechless,
stricken with emotion at the last farewell. Then he said quickly : "Close it
finally ; it must not be opened again."
Thus the remains ot England's greatest
ruler were forever closed from human

Preparations lor the Funeral.
London, Jan. 26.—The preparations
for Queen Victoria's funeral are gradually assuming definite form. It promises to be tbe most tremendous pageant of tbe generation. Tbe influx of
members of royal families and representatives of foreign countries bas been so
wholly unprecedented tbat the court
officials are finding it difficult to procure
suitable accommodations, the royal
palaces beiug totally inadequate. The
procession is expected to occupy two
hours traversing London from Victoria
Station to Paddingtou station, whence
the funeral train will depart at 11 \i$ a nt..
reaching Windsor at 11:50. Tbe colli 11
will be couveyed In tbe Queen's special
saloon carriage, attached to the royal
train, built especially for the diamond
jubilee, by which the late Queen and the
royal family will jouruey to the royal
King to Head (be Precession.
Tbe king, as chief mourner, accompanied hy Ituiperor William, will ride on
horseback at (he head of the procession
through London, with Field Marshal
Karl Roberts, the commander in chief
of the forces, and stall iu close proximity.
At least six battalions of infantry, eight
squadrons of cavalry aud a number of
artillery will participate in the procession, besides the multitudinous aisem-
blsge of peers, members of the house of
commons and court officials of strange
title and stranger garb. The streets will
be lined with soldiers, but the route has
not been definitely fixed. The coffin

R. S. Gallup te doing nine work on
liis claims on Horsethief c-sek.
Woik is being conlinui-'l on tbe Iron
Cap, which adjoins tht h *d Line, with
what success uo one seem-, lu know.
The Paystoue, owned by W. S, Santo
and H. O. Jennings, is nuother claim
which will be heard fioui. Some tine
specimens of copper have been taken
from the property.
The town of Peterborough, which is
the general supply point for the mines
oil Toby, lloreetbiel and Spring creeks,
boasts ul a population of 3 iq people with
good stores aud hotels. The townsile
owners expect to put in a water supply
system iu the spring.
On Horsethief No. 3, S. T. Coffand
others have a most promising silver-lead
claim. Une cross cut tunuel has heen
run 70 feet, the lead encountered at 60
feet showing tbe ledge to be six feet
wide witb Ihree and one-half feet of ore.
This property will be further exploited in
the spring.
The Windermere country will undoubtedly have a boom during the coming season. Everything points that way.
The opening up of miuea which are producing ore from the surface is tbe magnet which ia attracling investors. A
number of companies are now operating
tbere with a success which is pbeuomi-
nal. Eveiyoue who cones down frum
there are loud iu their praises of the
country and the wonderful showings.
On Bugaboo creek, 35 miles north of
Windermere, Mr. McKeeman has two
claims which will be extensively worked
next season. They are tbe Sunrise and
the Sunset. On the surface the ledge is
eight feet wide, showing two feet of ore
which will average 16 per cent copper.
It is advantageously located with good
timber and au abundance of water, and
the property can he worked by tunnels
running on the ledge. There is a trail
to the claim and it cau be worked the
year around.
There are several oiler claims in the
immediate vicinity of tbt' Paradise which
have excellent showings, among them
tbe Silver Crown, owned by C. M. Keep
and others. Several men are employed
in its development. A jo-foot tunnel Is
being driven and the lead was encountered at 25 feet, with a fine showing of ore.
The Silver Belt is another belonging to
the Keep syndicate. It is the intention
to do extensive work on these properties
in the spring. The Shamrock, a prospect owned by Montreal and Windermere parties, adjoining the Paradise on
the north, gives promise of becoming
valuable as the Fara$i*9 lead runs
through tbe center of the claim, Work
of development will commence on tbis
property early in the spring.
The latest arrivals from Peterborough
are S. T. Coff and Robert McKeeman,
wbo have been there for several mouths.
Mr. McKeeman, in au interview, said:
"1 have been working on the Paradise
group for some time, and must say that
it has a wonderful showing, Shipping
ore was takeu out from the grass roots,
aud nearly all of the openings show ore
of a shipping grade. At the present
time they are taking out 150 sacks of
carbonates daily, or about 10 tons. This
ore will ruu 50 per cent galena and 50
ounces of silver. Tbe ore is sacked as it
comes from tbe shaft. At the lowest estimate there is $100,000 worth Of ore In
sight. Tbe shaft is now down 100 feet
and so far there is no change iu the character of the ore. Drifting is going on in
the 50-foot level, starting with eight feet
of carbonates. A cross cut is also being
run to tap the main lead. This work is
now iu 150 feet, with 30 feet to ruu before tbe lead is encountered. This will
add greatly to tbe value of lhe property.
Captain Armstrong has a contract to
hall the ore irom tbe miue to the ore
houses on the Columbia river, aud is
taking down 35 tons daily. He has 50
horses raw hiding the ore to the wagon
road at the mouth of Spring creek, and
11 wagons Hre used lo haul from tbat
point to the river, making one trip per
day. This ore is all taken through the
town of Peterborough. When tbe contract is completed the company will
bave $30,000 worth of ore in the warehouse ready to ship to the smelter as
soon as navigation opens. There is now
700 tous of ore at the landing,"
Nineteen meu are at work on the new
draw bridge across the Kootenay at tbis
place. Tbe timbers are all out and it is
expected that the piles will all be driven
before tbe ice goes out, and Ihe superstructure completed iu the early spring.
It is learned that large quantities of
deer are being slaughtered by tbe In-

Mr. Reid, ot Reid, Campbell & Co..
Moyie, was in town yesterday. Speak-
ine of the close down at the St. Eugene,
he said he had every reason to believe
that work would be fully resumed as
as soon as the necessary number of men
could be secured. It is thought that the
railway company has made tbe concessions asked, and tbat shipments will be
resumed at once.
lPn-111 The Herald (.'oireipoudenij
There is every reason to believe that
tbe mining district east dt the Kootenay
river will, during the coming season, re*
ceive greater attention than ever before.
The field is large in extent and an excellent one for investment, Many of the
properties which have been opened up to
any extent have fine showings, but capital is needed to exploit them to the
point of production. Io the put, owing
to the distance from transportation, tbis
region had not received the attention
which the mineral showings would warrant. To be sure, a few years ago there
was a demand for mining properties and
several important deals were negotiated,
but for the most part the bouds were
given to speculators who organized companies and proceeded to sell slock for
development purposes. When tbe
amount received from stock sales was
exhausted the properties, in most instances, came into the bands of tbe original owners. This kind of mining is not
what is required to put ths} industry on a
stable basis. Capital must be induced to
come iu and open up the mines, Amateurs in mining are not needed.
It ia pleasing to note that men of experience in the mining world are beginning to make inquiries as to our resources
aud ask what we bave to -offer. The result will be that in the spring many of
Ihem will come inand see lor themselves.
In fact, this Is what our people want—
someone who can intelligently examine
and report on a property. When this
comes the country will go ahead.
Of course the probable Construction of
a railway is having a tendency to direct
attention this way. There ii no reason
why, with a railway, this district should
not be as well known as any other section of the province. Aside from the
Slocan, there is no other part of British
Columbia where the surface indications
are generally so good as in this particular section.
The district has been handicapped for
want of railways, bnt with tbe Crowa
Nest line completed and the probable
construction of the North and Sonth railway, this bugbear will be removed.
It will not be many years before East
Kootenay will become ai famous aa in
the early *6o's when miners flocked here
from all over the world, hired by the

A Bl| Mlslsj Dial.
A deal of considerable importance was
consummated in Fort Steele on Saturday last whereby the New Gold Fields
syndicate of London, England, have secured a bond on the Galore and Jew
group t f claims on Sullivan bill in close
proximity to the famous S-vtlivan group,
This waa engineered by N. A. Wallinger
and Beale & Elwell, The first payment
on the bond was made os Saturday afternoon. The Galore group, consisting
of tbe Galore, Santa Ann* and Htnma
Fraction la owned by B. C Smith and
others. The Jew group, comprising the
Jew, Velvet and Mac, Is the property of
J. D. McBride and others. .
The plans of tbe comp-fny regarding
these properties have not been fully outlined, although by the terms of the bond
the work will commence by the first of
May and be continued during the life of
the bond. The proximity of these
claims to the Sullivan and the well
known prominence of Ibrf corapsny warrants the belief that extensive work will
be done during the summtr, and before
snow flies there will probably be another
property to add to the list of East Koot-
enay'a producing mines.
The New Gold Fields syndicate is the
owner of the well known Violet mine
near Rossland.
Tbis deal is tbe first recorded on this
year. _____

Mooie Leader: Tbe St. Eugene concentrator was closed down tbia week,
and 160 men out of the a?0 employed at
the miue were laid off, Mtffnager Cronin,
who returned from California a few days
ago, when seen yesterday said tbat the
abutdown would be for an indefinite
time. The company has finished its contract aud bas not signed any renewals.
The shutdown is due to several causes,
amongst which is the difficulty of American smelters in obtaining dry ores for
fluxing purposes and tbe excessive freight
charges over the C, P. R, Thia renders
it impossible for the American smelters
to treat the American silveY lead ores at
a profit, therefore they refused to renew
their contracts with the mines on this
side of the line. As tbe smelters In
British Columbia are unable to handle
the ores of tbe district, tie silver lead
mine owners find themselves without a
market for their produce.
It is expect that the Do-Minion government will take some action at Ottawa
this winter to have the freight rates on
the C. P. R. reduced. Here ia an illustration of their treatment toward the
miue owners.   The C. l\ R, charges $6
per ton on ore between Moyie und
Creston, a distance of 55 miles, while the
Great Northern haul the same ore between Crestou aud Great Falls, Mont.,
a distance of 300 miles fer $300 per ton.
Mr. Cronin estimates that the returns
on ore now is $12 per ton less than it was
a year and a half ago. He estimates $6
a ton on freight, $4 per tou ou labor
caused by the difference between the 8
aud 10 hour shifts, aud $2 per ton in the
fall iu the price of lead. To the preseut
output of the St. Eugene mine this
meaus a difference of $1,200 per day or
$36,000 per mouth.
Over 100 men will still be employed
by the compauy doing development
work, but Mr. Cronin says that Ibis
number will be cut dov;u providing the
trouble is not settled within a reasonable
length of time.
It is not expected tbat tbe trouble will
be of long duration, as a speedy settlement is looked for.
Mining Notes.
Several thousand ore sscks which have
been stored in the ore sbeds at North
Star landing, have been taken away and
shipped lo the Velvet mine near Rossland.
N. A. McKinstry, of Kimberley, waa a
Cranbrook visitor last Monday, and

the Kimberley district and looks for a
busy season tbis coming summer.
Robert McKeeman come down from
tbe Kimberley district Monday. He
says everything is booming up tbere find
that tbe coming season will make a
great advance in that territory. "We
bave demonstrated that we have the ore
there, aud now it will be easier to get
capital for pushing the work. Tbe
Windermere district is all right."
G. IL Ililliard has returned from Sand
creek where he has just completed a
coutract for 100 feet of tunnel on tbe
Waterfall property, owned by the Langley brothers. Thc work was doue on a
working bond and an interest in the
property. It is uot known yet whether
the bond will be taken up. The first
tunnel was ruu -20 feel, ami the last work
was doue lower down Ihe mountain to
give depth to the workings. It is estimated tbat with 25 feet more of work tbe
ledge would be reached. The upper
tunuel shows a two-foot ledge of galena,
and the lower work was through rock

Tbe Herald editor, ou former occasions, has said that there are limes wben
it was a pleasure to lie the editor of a
newspaper, since it gives one an opportunity to say a good word for individuals
wbo deserve it. At this time Tbe Herald
desires to say a word for a lady of Cranbrook, wbo has, by her kindnrss of

to assist in any work social, religious,
charitable or patriotic, made here-self a
necessity to the people of Cranbrook.

The district of South East Kootenay,
and Cranbrook, is entitled lo a change
so far as the government business is con
cerned. For months and mouths, one
government after another has failed lo
take any action in this mailer, and the
people of Movie, Ferine, Kimberley,
Klko, Wardner and Swansea still come
to Cranbrook on the railway, ai.d theu
are compelled to hire conveyances and
drive (3 miles to the senl of government.
The population of the district is growing, the government business is growing,
and Cranbrook is growing. The needs
and conveniences'^ thfl people in Cranhrook and the other towus throughout
the district should be considered, and
the time is now To compel people to
ride 24 miles by wagon in all kinds ol
weather to transact government business
is a rank imposition, Every lown in lhe
district has direct railway connection
With Cranbrook, except Foil Steele, lhe
towu where the government offices are
located. Furthermore, Cranbrook, owing to her railway connections and geographical position, is the natural and
railway center of the district. No olher
town can compete with her in tliis
spect, a fact that is conceded hy all. It
is the logical center for the transaction
of business, since more people throughout the district can reach Craubrook
with less inconvenience, th in they can
any other town tu the district.
Tbe Herald is not advocating the removal of ollices from Fort Steele, nor is
it urging this matter to boom Crnnbrook.
Crnnbrook has been steadily growing
since the time the town whs surveyed
anil is growing on its merits, Rut Tin
Herald is opposed to taxing every person
in the district who has business wilh the
government, by way of additional expense, to advance the fortunes of auy
one individual.
It it is not the intention of the govern-
ment to remove the oHiices, till well and

A Poor Policy.
It is a grave mistake for any newspaper to boost a mining property lhat it
knows -.ir should know is virtually de
fund. A paper that continues to speak
in flattering terms ofa property that the
whole community and many mining investors throughout Canada and the
Slates know has beeu allowed to rest for
the reason that there is nothing in it, in
jures it owu reputation and is a positive
detriment to tlte district. People do not
forget, and they nre not fools, When
tbe name paper is honest, and speaks|of
u legitimate proposition, it is discredited
on account of llie other. It is a poor
policy lo boosl an absolute failure ii
milling.     __^^___^___

A Big Thing for tlraobrook.
The building of the new bridge over
the Kooleiiay river at Wasa hy Mr.
Hanson, is Ruing to be of great benefit
to Cranbrook. It will place Windermere
people from 10 to 12 miles nearer tbe
railroad, as they will be able to reach
Crnnbrook now sooner than lhey could
Fort Steele heretofore. A gentleman
who came over fiom Fort Steele Mondov
stated that in all probability the stage
that now runs from Fort Steele to Windermere would be changed to run from
Craubrook, as it was nearer, and would
give direct communication with the railroad.
Wong Comedy.

has taken possession. Wong Comedy
will now have full charge of the business,
Wing hee, he quit. Save your laundry
for Wong Comedy; he will do yonr work
right.    Remember the name.
At the present time there is hardly a
family in Cranbrook that does uot read
The Herald. That means that when
you have anything to sell nud tell the
people about it, lu the columns of The
Herald you reach the very ones you are
after. Wheu a person enlers yonr stoie,
you are anxious lo show your goods and
tell of your bargains. Hut all of the
people in Ctaubrook do not cuter your
store each week. You must tallc to
tbem iu some other way. The Herald
is the medium. The people read The
Herald. Make the advertising a part of
your business, Change your ails. Show
tbe people that you have something to
sell. Impress upon thein the fact that
yoit want Iheir trade. You are talking
to 1200 or 1500 possible customers wheu
you talk to the people through the columns of Tlie Herald.
This is worth remembering, Advertising pays,
